This is a university project that consists of 4 main parts:

The objective is to design a given text as readable as possible. Given was a poem, a literature text and the biography of the an Austrian author that. All this information had to be designed in a way chosen by the student.

The objective here was to make the texts of the first task unreadable while still trying to keep certain aesthetics. One must not be able to decipher the text after the design process was done.

The instructions for this part included the words: 'excited', 'polarity' and 'satisfied'. These words needed to be designed in a given format with only consisting of typographic elements. The goal was to present the meaning of each word in two separate typograms.

Folding mechanism
All these designs needed to be concluded inside an object with a folding mechanism, with every student deciding for themselves which technique they'd want to choose. I came up with the special idea of spelling the word 'Typo' (short for typography) when looked upon from above when the paper parts were opened.
